Until my hourglass is empty, I will be grateful.

  2. Absolutely agree. If we cant be grateful for daily blessings so easily taken for granted; how can we grow and appreciate the bigger opportunities, blessings, gifts that we are bestowed. Gratefulness is having the power of positivity. Positivity begets hope. With hope, there are no limits :) Blessings in the New Year NP:)

  4. Attitude is everything. It's one of few things that's completely under one's control.

  5. Since everyone runs out of sand eventually, I'd rather spend it peacefully and be remembered fondly. That's a sweet one, Marty!

  9. All we truly have is the present - and as it is a gift of profound proportions, gratitude for every speck of the sand allotted is the only fitting response. Nice.

  16. Yes Marty, the "glass is never half-empty". Life is a marathon, not the 100 meters dash, and it ain't over till it's over!

  17. ''Until my hourglass is empty, I will be grateful''.
    You got that right, then we can finally stop reading these boring ass aphorisms.
